CFP (Book Series): Edited New Book Series in Intercultural Transfer Studies with Anthem Press

We invite authors from the humanities and social sciences to submit book proposals and manuscripts for our new book series in Intercultural Transfer Studies.

The intercultural transfer paradigm allows us to study phenomena within the space these phenomena created, and which cuts across national spaces.
